HP: Try as you may, this is simply not the case. It would be the case IF you consistently walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. Too often believers yield to the flesh and walk after it. If one believes there is no condemnation just on the account that you have at one time given your life to the Lord, such a one is either deceived or about to get an eye opener. When we sin as believers, condemnation in act does set in. It is called conviction. You can quote all the scripture you so desire, but the condemnation and conviction will not leave you until either you get your heart right again with God or find that you have quenched the Spirit to the point that He no longer strives with your heart. When we are walking in the light as He is in the light, there is no condemnation and we are dead to the law. Just as when one is abiding by all the laws of the road, we do not have to worry about getting a ticket, for we are in compliance to the law therefore we are not subject to its penalties. Just the same, when we violate the law, regardless of our past, we come back under the condemnation of the law and must fulfill the conditions of repentance and faith, doing our first works over again in order to enter once again to a right relationship with God and a sure hope of eternal life. God has not so designed our assurance of eternal salvation so as to grant us full assurance of our final standing before Him while we are holding a conscience that is not void of offense. Listen carefully to these Scriptural passages. Eze 3:20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Eze 18:24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
